The second edition of Pelvic Floor Re-education provides a comprehensive overview of the subject, along with other aspects of the clinical assessment and management of pelvic floor disorders.

Starting with the latest theories on the anatomy, pathophysiology, and possible causes of pelvic floor damage, the importance of pelvic floor evaluation is looked at in order to determine the type of treatment required. Practical techniques of muscle assessment and investigative methodologies are reviewed and up-to-date information on anatomy and physiology is discussed.
